Douglasville Planning Director Michelle Wright gave an update on the Highway 92 project to a Town Hall meeting held at Jessie Davis Park on May 9th, 2017. Here is a copy of her update.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has provided this 3D animated video of what this project will look like when completed. To watch click - GDOT video.

An online road or construction project concern form has been set up for citizens to let us know about problems with any of the road or other construction projects around Douglasville.

Douglasville roads guru, Mike Bryant says the water main work for the Highway 92 re-route is almost finished. Here is a shot of the last joint in the re-route being tightened up. It will be encased in cement, and then covered over with dirt.

Please be advised that on Approximately October 28, 2015, Highway 78 traffic will be shifted onto the temporary road between Connally St. and Mozley St. On the detour edge, the right side leaving Douglasville will have temp barrier wall between Mozley and Hagin, then curb from Hagin through the ramp intersection (with the exception of where the future bridge and approach slabs will go). The left side will have temporary barrier wall separating traffic from the RR tracks once those are shifted. Please note that this shift will be for the next 3 years as they tunnel under Highway 78 and the RR tracks, and the construction of the bridges. Please let me know if you have any questions.

06/01/15 Update

Grading continues just south of US78 to drop the SR92 roadbed 30 feet as it approaches where it will go under highway 78. The section from Fairburn Road to the grading area is looking like a real road now.

Work will begin soon on the US 78 ramp to the new SR 92. The railroad tracks as well as US 78
will be shifted to the south, to help accomplish this work. The City of Douglasville appreciates the patience of our citizens as we work through this milestone transportation project.

Utility relocation continues in the area of what will be the Highway 78 intersection with SR92.

Blasting Zone Sign
CW Matthews has sub-contracted with a professional controlled blasting company to perform the necessary explosive and blasting components of this phase in the SR 92 project. Here are a few important facts to know:

Blasting Zone:
· Cooper St traveling north to Highway 78
· 6164 E Broad St traveling west to Hagen St

Blasting Schedule:
· Blast sites preparation will include drilling for 1-2 days early next week (1/19/15)
· Most detonation will occur early afternoons near the 2pm hour
· Blast will begin midweek (1/19/15) for a 6 week period

What to expect:
· Advanced technologies will result in very minimal or noticeable excavation effects
· Heavy sand/dirt charge cover is used over each charge detonation so as to provide minimal to no debris
· Charge covers are 4-5 feet deep/high
· Blasting will have little (1-2 minute delays) to no impact on traffic flow

Pre-blasting inspection was conducted in December which included property inspections of businesses and residents in this zone. A certified letter was sent to each location within the zone as well.

Utility pole relocation on Highway 78 between Dorsett St. and Hagin St. has begun in order to prepare for a lane shift
at that location after the holidays.

The 30" and 36" pipes between Hospital Dr. North and Cooper St. will be ongoing through the holidays.

The contractor will be rerouting the 16" water main on Strickland St. at Brown St.
Details will follow as they become available.

The RR crossing at Brown St. and Highway 78 has been demolished as of 12/1/14.
